The image shows a Made-to-Move Barbie wearing a handmade babydoll pajama. The doll's lilac-colored pajamas are trimmed in bias tape, ribbon, and rick-rack. Barbie lays on a doll-sized bed with a small quilt on the bed. The quilt has little hearts on it (for this image was posted in February, for Valentine's Day. Barbie's head lays on a quilted pink-and-purple nine patch pillow. She has a stuffed bear on her bed and a cabinet in the background. The wallpaper is purple and there's a window in the wall behind her. The whole diorama is 1:6 scale to suit Barbie. The doll wraps her hand around the nine-patch quilted doll pillow, and she has her legs crossed at the ankle as she reclines upon her little quilt-covered bed.

It’s February, so for St. Valentine’s Day this year, I looked back through my emails from fans and followers for an idea that might suit the Valentine’s Day theme. What did I come up with?

A babydoll pajama!

Made to Move Barbie is wearing a cotton Babydoll pajama top with shorts, but the shorts cannot be seen as the camera angle is above her head a bit. The pajama uses lace and a heart-shaped button. She also wears felt slippers. The cotton pajama is decorated with cupcakes. Behind her is a wall that appears to be decorated with unicorns, rainbows, stars, and glitter... themes reminiscent of the dreamscape. The overlay, ChellyWood.com, is the URL for a website where you can find the free, printable sewing patterns for making this  pajama set for Barbie and similar-sized dolls.

This week’s free pattern for the babydoll pajama that you see above and below will fit Barbie, Francie, and Skipper dolls. It can also be adapted for smaller dolls like Monster High and the six inch American Girl doll  by simply changing the length of the bias tape used.
